ANOTHER_STORY team gathered its best and easiest ideas to throw a one-of-a-kind virtual baby shower party with your family and friends.
The 2020 virtual baby shower
Spread the news, send the e-invitation!
Pick a theme, simple and joyful, we vote for summer vibes! Design your own e-card by hiring a free-lance graphist or by personalizing a pre-set template available online. There are plenty of websites proposing free illustrated greeting cards templates, click here to access one of them for instance ;) Set the date, the hour, and don't forget to add the link to access the virtual celebration online!
Pick the platform
Video calls never have been that easy and fun! From original backgrounds to special filters, shared screen and unlimited number of participants, pick your options and set up the gathering online.
PssssT: We have a small preference for Zoom platform... Tested and adopted during COVID lockdown, this platform shows very rarely signs of weaknesses and we know how painful it is when the cam, mic or any other feature isn't working properly.
Decoration is key!
Since you're hosting THE baby shower of the year, you won't miss the chance to impress your virtual guests with some unique party supplies, home decoration and festive accessories for your partner, and the very lucky ones surrounding you on that day.
PICK MERI MERI TO DRESS UP THE KIDS TABLE!
